We're looking for iOS, Android, Server and Data engineers.

Our interview process is a phone screen with an engineer and a day of on-site interviews.

Mindflash | Palo Alto, CA | Full-Time | Remote or Onsite | US Citizen or Green Card only

We are a small edtech company (~30 people) by El Camino & Page Mill Road in Palo Alto looking to ramp up our engineering team by up to 5 solid mid-level/senior full-stack engineers.

Our company has been around since 1999, and remained small while only having ever raised a seed & Series A round with a single investor. Our product is a learning management system (LMS), which allows our clients to educate their users. It was recently ranked #4 in Fortune's most flexible workplaces[1], and I have the pleasure of saying that this is the best company I have worked at thus far due to the combination of excellent management/executives, and tremendous work-life balance enjoyed by all, as well as ample opportunity to move technology forward. In addition, we have better gender balance at the company than most in the area, including in engineering - we strive to be inclusive, although primarily we just want people who are awesome to work with, including being considerate to others.

We have a smart & burgeoning engineering group that is working on some interesting problems. Our tech stack includes Node.js (v4), Angular 1 & 2, MySQL, Elasticsearch, & Jenkins, as well as Selenium with Java 8 on the QA automation side. There is a lot of opportunity across the stack to touch many different areas to make improvements. We are open to trying different technologies as well, and have a culture of writing tests for our code. We strike a great balance of keeping product quality high while creating the ability to address technical debt, and get raving reviews from our clients for ease of use.

We are willing to relocate able candidates, or allow working remote if the candidate is willing to work roughly standard Pacific time working hours (9 am - 5 pm PT).

Our interview process generally involves no whiteboarding or live coding, and instead focuses on experience & ability to design software while working on a team.

Please contact me at wesley.cho(at)mindflash.com if interested in more details - no recruiters please, I will not respond.

Pivotal | ONSITE at many locations worldwide | Engineers, Designers, Product Managers, Pre/Post-Sales Engineers, Ops, Sales, Admin

Pivotal's goal is to change the way the world makes software and we kinda sorta really mean it.

We value aptitude over alma mater, empathy over a list of APIs. It doesn't matter whether your resumé says PHP or PhD: if you're smart, empathetic and know some stuff, we want to work with you.

We have many established offices worldwide (pivotal.io/locations) and more coming.

We're broken into three main divisions: Pivotal Labs (yes, that Pivotal Labs), Cloud R&D and Big Data.

-- Pivotal Labs helps clients to become better at product development. For engineering we are religiously lean and agile. In practice that means we pair program and TDD every line of code from the outside. Our product managers are fantastic at keeping products sharply focused, our designers are masters from users to pixels.

-- Cloud R&D is where we build the best cloud platform available. We're the majority contributors to the Cloud Foundry project. Our distribution has the fastest-growing sales of any opensource product ever and it's still zooming up and to the right.

Except for upstream code, every line is pair programmed and TDD'd. We dogfood the cutting edge of the technology on our own commercial public cloud (Pivotal Web Services). It works because we took the XP and Lean DNA of Pivotal Labs and scaled it up to build the best cloud platform available.

-- Big Data is our suite of battled-hardened products, now open sourced. Greenplum tackles massive datasets with the comfort of PostgreSQL. Apache HAWQ (incubating) brings Greenplum's distributed query planner to Hadoop. Gemfire, donated as Apache Geode (incubating), is an in-memory distributed grid with years of high performance in high-stakes systems.

-- Generally

At our offices we have free breakfast, weekly tech talks, excellent benefits and competitive pay. Ping pong isn't mandatory, but it's popular. I think west-coast ping pong is harder to beat, but east-coast style is more entertaining to watch. The NYC beer fridge has more IPA than I prefer but I guess that's life in paradise.

Presently we're hiring engineers in Atlanta, Beaverton, Beijing, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Dublin, London, New York, Palo Alto, Paris, San Francisco, Santa Monica, Seattle, Sydney, Toronto and Washington DC. Most of these are hiring designers and product managers. Other roles are being hired worldwide also.

To see our open jobs and apply directly, follow this referral URL: http://grnh.se/xiy346

You can also email me at jchester+hn@pivotal.io to answer any questions.

Either of these helps me score one of our referral bonuses (did I mention our generous referral scheme?)

I may not be able to reply immediately, as I am just an engineer here.
